In this demonstration, Capacitech Energy uses our CBC technology to provide backup power to a personal AC unit. The CBC's were able to power the fan for ~30 seconds after the fan was unplugged from the wall! When the power source is disconnected, the CBC discharges to power the fan inside the personal AC unit.
This is a fantastic demonstration as it shows how the CBC can be built directly in a power cord to provide coverage during power fluctuations.
The CBC could discretely provide backup power to a variety of devices such as Wi-Fi routers, cable boxes, game consoles, IT equipment, electric bikes, or even RAM cards... Stay tuned for more demonstrations!
Q: How much power does the fan draw?
A: The fan draws an average of 1.5W.
Q: What is the input voltage from the source?
A: Any 5 watt iPhone charger can be used as a 5V source.
Q: How many CBC cells are needed in what connection for this demonstration?
A: Because the input voltage is 5V, four CBC cells are needed connected in series. Each CBC cell is rated to 1.6V. By adding four cells in series, the combined CBCs are rated to 6.4V. To provide additional back up power, 10cm cells are used and are connected in parallel.
Q: How long will the CBC provide backup power for?
A: It depends on the power drawn by the load. In this demonstration, the CBC’s provide about 30 seconds of backup power. We found that by adding another strand of four series connected 10cm cells, an additional 15 seconds can be supported.
